Scientific interests Dr. Jean-Francois Doussin was appointed as Maître de Conférences (Lecturer - Assistant Professor) in Chemistry at the University of Paris 7 - Denis Diderot on 1st September 1998. He has been a member of the research group "Physico-chemical reactivity of trace compounds in the atmosphere" at the Inter-University Laboratory of Atmospheric systems (LISA) for over 10 years. This group has been leaded by Dr. Patrick Carlier for over 20 years.Dr. JF Doussin is now leading the group "Multiphase Reactivity in Simulated Atmosphere".

His main scientific interest are : (1) Kinetic and mechanistic studies of atmospheric processes in medium sized photo-reactors using in situ long-path absorption spectroscopy for analysis; (2) Atmospheric aerosol chemical characterisation (3) Multiphase atmospheric chemistry (4) Molecular spectroscopy for atmospheric trace gas measurements.
